Sending e mails with an attachment from Thunderbird to Outlook 365 , each time the name of the attachment is long, the attachment name is displayed by Outlook 365 with a modified name.
The modified name, as displayed by Outlook 365, starts with the initial digits of original name as sent by Thunderbird, followed by a long sequence of alphanumeric characters (e.g. %65%6E%5F%53%63%68%61%64%65%6E%5F%4C%65%74%69%7A%69%61%20%52%6F%74%61%20%28%33%29%2E%70%64%66 )
The above happens with PDF attachments . The PDF contents are not corrupted, but the file name is changed. (In the case of a .docx attachment with a the same long name, in addition to displaying the wrong name, the attachment itself became in Outlook 365 a .dat file which could not be open).
Is any configuration change I should introduce in Thunderbird to overcome this incompatibility?
Different PCs are showing the same issue. OS: Windows 2004 with the Sept 2020 Cumulative Update. Office 365 updated with the Sep 2020 update. Thunderbird 72.2.2 - 32 bit with standard settings and Unicod (UTF-8) - German Language
The problem might have been preexisting, I just noted it now.
(I also wrote about the issue in a Microsoft forum, it has been initially suggested to repair Outlook 365 but this did not help, other investigation steps may still come)
